To type an @ sign I have to press shift 2 and to get " (speech marks) I have to press shift @ or ' (a hyphen) . Also, I'm unable to press the pound sign because instead it comes up with a # , so now I have to copy and paste a pound sign off the internet. Please help! It's brand new, I've only had it for a month or so! Thank you in advance :) )

look into your " all settings" (icon on taskbar) click on it, from there type keyboard in search box, then select country, choose change your country and region, in ther you can change your keyboard to be the right one. seems you have the french keyboard activated.

Threw me there for a bit as that IS the (American) pound sign. Took me a couple of seconds to realize you meant the £ sign.

Agree with Paladin that your keyboard settings/region was changed and a reset should resolve.
